Sophomore outside hitter Jessi Lumsden helped lead the Chapman volleyball team to three straight wins this week against three of the best teams in the SCIAC. Lumdsen dominated the front row in all three contests with a .244 hitting percentage, averaging 3.69 kills per set. She also had 11 total blocks to average 0.54 blocks per set. The Carlsbad, Calif. native was an asset all over the court with 2.77 digs per set. 

The Panthers came from behind to beat No. 4 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps in five sets on Tuesday evening. Lumsden led the attack with 18 kills on a .250 hitting percentage. After a clean sweep of La Verne on Friday, the sophomore helped Chapman earn its 13th consecutive victory with another come-from-behind win against Cal Lutheran the next day. Lumsden slammed down 17 kills to help the Panthers remain undefeated in SCIAC play.
